Vodafone recruits young recent graduates

  • Applications for the Discover Vodafone Graduates Program are already open
  • Vodafone Portugal has already integrated more than 170 young talents in this program
  • Opportunity for international career in one of Vodafone Group’s countries

The applications for another edition of the Discover Vodafone Graduates – a program that selects and integrates young, high potential people in the Company - have already opened and can be fulfilled in Vodafone Portugal’s website. All areas are eligible but in the last few years the focus has been mainly on Engineering, Marketing, Management and Economics.

Created ten years ago, the Discover Vodafone Graduates Program has already integrated more than 170 employees at Vodafone Portugal.

Vodafone is looking for young students with a Master’s degree (or almost concluding it) who are motivated, dynamic and ambitious and can participate actively in the development of innovative products and services. Proficiency in English is fundamental and international experience is highly valued.

During the first 24 months, the Graduates are accompanied by a senior member of their team – the buddy – that helps them with their integration. Focusing on the goal of enhancing the candidates’ professional development, during the two years of the program the participants will pass through three distinct business areas, in a job rotation system: one with a commercial focus and the two others related to the academic profile of each candidate. This is a way to acquire knowledge and versatile competences, boosting our employees’ growth so that they can build a successful career in one of the best telecommunication companies worldwide.

Another distinguishing factor of Discover Vodafone Graduates is the possibility that employees have to live an international experience in one of the countries where Vodafone Group is located.

“Besides the continuous training that Vodafone offers us – and the opportunity that the Discover Graduate Program gave me to specialize myself in my area of interest – Digital Marketing – I was able to have an international experience in Vodafone Czech Republic and bring the area’s best practices to Portugal” shares Rita Silva (Digital Marketing Specialist, Graduate, 2014 edition).  

  The chosen graduates will have the opportunity to begin their career in an Enterprise that is in the forefront of technological transformation, able to look at the future and that embraces the innovations that come from technology while providing them to its Clients and Partners.

“Being a Graduate was the best way for me to enter the job market, especially in a multinational enterprise. Being a Graduate allows us to have constant follow-up on our professional development, so that we have the essential tools to overcome the challenges and achieve our career goals, in a constantly innovative environment”, describes Pedro Peixe Ribeiro (Cyber Security Manager, Graduate, 2011 edition).  

As a recognition of its work in the Human Resources area, Vodafone has been distinguished as one of the best three companies to work at in Portugal. An example of this recognition is the recent distinction by the international consultancy company Korn Ferry.
